Warning Over ‘Invoice’ Emails
Islanders are being warned about spam emails linked to the Dridex cyber crime.
The Jersey Financial Services Commission has issued advice, telling us to be extra vigilant and not open unexpected or suspicious attachments.
The malware is typically disguised as an invoice and infects your computer with a virus that allows hackers to steal bank account details.
The JFSC says a large volume of the infected emails are being received from the following addresses.
Barry Faudemer, Director of Enforcement offered the following advice:
“Unfortunately, due to the nature of the virus constantly changing, the majority of anti-virus software is not able to detect nor protect users. Therefore, the JFSC is warning people to be extremely vigilant. Do not open unexpected email attachments and delete any suspicious emails that may contain the virus.”
